    Undoubtedly one of the best albums of the century so far. This album throws out hit after hit and not just simple hits but some really beautiful songs. From the monumental loud rock crashes of that golden rule, bubbles and boom, blast and ruin that will guaranteed get you jumping, to the spectacular emotional melodies of songs like Many of horror, God and Satan and know your quarry.

Track after track is awesome and memorable in its own way. A truly brilliant Alternative rock album. This is the music I want to represent my generation! Collapse

    I love this album, they seem to have struck a great balance between riffage and balads, this will surely thrust them in to the big league where their sound belongs.

    I'm sorry but how does 6 scores of 8/10 equate to an average of 84%. This site's stupid! Album's not bad!

    Good stuff from the boys yet again. It's more a continuation on what Puzzle started rather than a return to their older [and some would say better] form, but you can't deny the talent, great melodies, catchy as 'Foooook' - Pity Pitchfork media will drag the score right down when they get hold of it.

    Many of Horror, Bubbles, Boom Blast & Ruin. 3 reasons why you need to buy this album and play it loud.

    Foo Fighters lite it may be but there are enough good tracks on this to merit a place in the record collection. The best tracks are top quality and the worst tracks are harmlessly bland, but not offensive or terrible. Rather than buying the record Iâ

    This album is the most mainstream rock album by Biffy Clyro, but they still manage to stick to their high powered rock roots. This album is well worth the listen as you will not be listening to it just once.

  1. A turn towards pop has alienated some fans of their earlier work, but almost everything here could be released as a single, and that’s an undeniably winning achievement.
  2. Can you hear it? It’s here! Biffy finally make that sprint-burst into the rock stratosphere and trample over the competition like badly tattooed elephants smashing through dead branches.
  3. It's likely that their slabs of noise are too explosive. But for Team Biffy, their followers, this is a strength, not a failing.
